Sorry Aimee, I guess I didn't scan your pig. I know I have it so
will scan and upload it and Julio can post it. I'll check the
galleries and see if anymore are missing.

And while I'm here, here's wishing all of your a blessed new year.

Hey --

I'm studying abroad in Oxford, UK over January and will also probably be
spending a long weekend in London during that time - if anyone knows of any
good studios etc. to visit while I'm there, I'd love any leads you have to
give me!

Thanks so much,

I really meant don't forget about Exchange 47!!!

We have 28 participants so plan for 29 prints (one for the archive).

As you (hic) celebrate the upcoming New Year, I have some resolutions for
everyone to ponder:

-Always be on time for all Baren exchanges, heck who cares, just be on time

-Communicate promptly with your coordinator if you have to drop or if the
dog eats the key block

-Observe the proper size of paper and technique for the exchange

-Remember the deadline February 1st 2011

-Order a case if you'd like to keep your prints neat and tidy

-Submit print details as soon as you know what the darned print details are

Your information page:

That's it, may your knives be sharp, your fingers be swift and your tightly
wrapped baren slide easy on the paper.

And of course, may your 2011 be a productive and truly wonder-full year.

Maria, your humble coordinator

Whoa! What happened to December? I've been away, making merry with my family, and things have crept up on me a bit. Nevertheless, we are due to entertain sign-ups for a new exchange, the first of the New Year 2011.
This exchange is set to be a themed exchange in chuban size (about 10 x 7.5 inches or 25.5 x 19 cm). With this short notice, and my apologies to all of you for that circumstance, I would like to request some ideas for a possible theme. Please get your ideas out here in the Baren forum over the next couple of days, and then on Friday the finalist for the theme will be announced. Sign-ups will open up January 2, 2011, in an effort to get us all through the merriment of the New Year celebrations.

Thanks everyone for all of your support and participation throughout 2010. We've seen some beautiful art created and shared. Let's have a record year in 2011.

Your (somewhat tardy) Exchange Manager,
Kristine Alder
